The presence of undead!
The cloud of murky air gradually expanded. The undead were able to move freely within its coverage.
In addition to that, the undead would grow stronger as the aura did. The undead were different than most summoned creatures. If the deathly presence was strong enough, certain kinds of undead, like skeletons, would be revived from the dead.
Sayed was summoning a mummy-type undead. Its head appeared first, wrapped in gray cloth, followed by its hands as it crawled out of the hole!
The mummy was around three meters tall, its entire body wrapped in gray cloth. Only its eyes, nose, and mouth were slightly exposed between the gaps.
Its eyes were completely hollow, the sockets pitch-black. Its eyes were missing, its mouth did not have lips. The sound of whimpering was coming between its exposed yellow teeth, the sound full of hatred.
The gray-Cloth mummy crawled out from the hole and stood in front of Sayed like a little giant. Its undead aura filled the entire dueling ground.
It was irascible in nature. It immediately charged at its target after Sayed gave it the order!
A strong pressure rose when the mummy began to run. A height of three meters was not too scary for demon creatures, yet for some reason, the pressure the mummy brought was comparable to that of a beast over ten meters tall. Dongfang Lie had no chance of dodging it!
The gray-Cloth mummy was not as sluggish as most mummys. Its sturdy legs sank into the ground and came to a full stop when it was around ten meters away from Dongfang Lie. Shards of concrete scattered across the place from the mummy’s strong momentum.
The mummy threw a fierce punch. It seemed to have fully transferred the momentum of the charge into its arm. Its fist emitted a sharp blue flicker of light as it rapidly approached Dongfang Lie’s face.
Dongfang Lie had not thought the mummy could throw a punch at him despite being ten meters away. He quickly summoned his Shield Equipment in a panic.
Dongfang Lie’s Shield Equipment was a tower shield, big enough to fully cover his body.
The blue flicker slammed heavily onto the tower shield. It started trembling with a piercing screech as the violent force penetrated the layer of defense and headed for Dongfang Lie.
Dongfang Lie was able to react quickly, and immediately summoned his armor. A red armor wrapped around his body at the quickest speed.
The remaining force collided into the red armor, knocking Dongfang Lie six meters back!
The hot-tempered Bai Dongwei could not help but curse when he saw Dongfang Lie using two of his trump cards when the duel had only just begun.
The Undead Element was incredibly rare, but the undead were basically a bunch of demon creatures living in tombs and the underground. If Dongfang Lie had actually taken the initiative to attack first, he would not have been forced to use his defensive equipment so quickly!
“Don’t lose your head!” Bai Dongwei knew scolding the student in the middle of a duel would not be any help to him, but he still had no choice but to say that to Dongfang Lie.
Dongfang Lie realized he was at a disadvantage. He immediately jumped back to create some distance between him and the Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy.
However, the Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy was extremely quick afoot. It immediately chased Dongfang Lie after the first punch. Dongfang Lie had no choice but to cast a Fiery Fist and release it earlier than he was supposed to…
The Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy skidded sideways and dodged the burning fist.
The path of a Fiery Fist was in the shape of a gradually expanding fan. If the target was too close, the coverage of the attack was only slightly larger than a normal punch. On top of that, it only traveled in a straight line. With the right timing, it was fairly easy to dodge!
The Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy was obviously very familiar with human magic. Dongfang Lie was stunned when he saw the undead dodge his attack agilely. He quickly cast a Basic Spell to prevent the Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy from moving any closer.
Even though Dongfang Lie’s Fire Burst had also reached the fourth-tier, its damage was totally ineffective against the Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy. The undead simply forced its way through the explosion without trying to dodge it.
The undead quickly approached Dongfang Lie. It lifted its leg and kicked Dongfang Lie flying with a quick swipe.
Dongfang Lie’s armor was made of metal. The sound of the impact clearly implied that the mummy’s body was just as sturdy as Lie’s armor!
Dongfang Lie rolled quite a distance away after he landed. Luckily, the quality of his armor was rather impressive. Otherwise, the kick would have easily broken his ribs!
“Damn it!” Dongfang Lie clenched his teeth when he felt the pain from his chest.
“You won’t dodge it this time!” Dongfang Lie endured the pain and completed a Star Pattern. His right hand was engulfed in blazing flames!
“Fiery Fist: Nine Dragons!”
Fiery dragons sprang forward from the flames burning on Dongfang Lie’s fist, leaving a trail of flames in their wake…
The nine fiery dragons pounced at the Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy. The blazing flames immediately devoured its body and set the area on fire.
“Bet it doesn’t feel great?” Dongfang Lie grinned when he saw the Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy struggling in the fire.
He was surprised by the undead’s strength and speed at the start. However, the undead was surely no match for him. Dongfang Lie immediately cast a few spells to kill the undead while it was trying to escape from the flames!
Sayed stood far away, making sure that he was not within the range of Dongfang Lie’s spells.
His face was still displaying two dimples, meaning that he was still wearing a grin.
His blue eyes suddenly emitted a red flicker, as if he had just given an order. The Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy burning in the flames suddenly let out a roar and charged in Dongfang Lie’s direction, as if it had gone mad.
Its body was still burning fiercely. It simply brought the flames with it as it was running at Dongfang Lie.
Dongfang Lie was unable to dodge it. He was sent flying at a shocking speed, as if a huge truck had just rammed into him. He slammed heavily into the barrier around the dueling ground.
The impact was shocking. Dongfang Lie’s armor almost broke into pieces from the impact.
Dongfang Lie spat out mouthfuls of blood. His face was incredibly pale. He could not even stand up as most of his bones were broken…
“How weak!” The smile on Sayed’s face widened.
Bai Dongwei inhaled deeply, withholding the urge to curse. He quickly called a Healer over to treat Dongfang Lie’s wounds.
